Word reader lets you read and print all Microsoft word documents formats docx, doc, htm, html, rtf and txt

Even if you don’t have installed Microsoft Word on your computer, still you can read and print word documents. The freeware tool Word Viewer lets you view and print all word document formats such as MS Word 2007 (docx), Word 97 – 2003 (doc), html, htm, Rich text format (rtf) and plain text (txt) formats.

The multilingual software (English, Chinese, German, French, Italian, and Japanese) is quite easy to use, just install, and run it. Select a document for reading or printing (editing is not supported). You can also increase or decrease the font size for convenient viewing.

There is also a ‘Full screen mode’ option, but I think there is a minor bug in it. In full screen mode the program crashes and takes long time to come back in normal mode (when pressing Esc key).
